Start Your Monday with These 3 Brainteasers 960 678 Emilie

Last week we brought you 3 brainteasers to fight the Monday blues and get your brain moving. No matter how much coffee we have, sometimes it seems impossible to fully wake up at the beginning of a work week. But with these fun brainteasers, we know you’ll be able to tackle your Monday with ease!

Triangles. Here at United EVENTures, we love our geometric puzzles! This triangle puzzle from Brain Athlete challenges you to calculate the total number of triangles located in the image below. How many can you find?

Blood Donors. Now that we’ve tested your geometric analysis, let’s try a logic puzzle! This riddle, from Brain Bashers asks you to determine the position, age, height, blood type and weight of each blood donor. Brain Bashers has all kinds of riddles and puzzles that you can check out whenever you want!

Five patients, all potential blood donors, are waiting in the doctor’s surgery and are sitting on the bench from left to right. Can you determine the position of each patient along with their blood group, age, height and weight? Their ages are 5, 9, 30, 46 and 60. Their heights are 40, 48, 60, 65 and 74. Their weights are 40, 75, 96, 125 and 165.

  • The person on the far right is 37 years older than Jason, and is 60 inches tall.
  • Jason weighs 56 pounds more than his height.
  • Alan weighs 75 pounds and is 74 inches tall.
  • John is type AB and weighs 56 pounds less than Jason.
  • The person in the centre is 9 years old, is blood type AO and weighs 96 pounds.
  • Adam, who is the first, is 65 inches tall, and weighs 100 pounds more than his height.
  • The person who is blood type O, is 25 years older than the person to the left of them.
  • Kevin is 60 years old.
  • The person who is blood type A, is 55 years younger than Kevin and is not next to the person who is type AO.
  • The person who is next to the 9 year old but not next to the person who is 65 inches tall, is blood type B, and weighs 125 pounds.

Why You’re Going to Want to Watch the Sunrise this Week
Why You’re Going to Want to Watch the Sunrise this Week 960 720 Emilie

You might think a sunrise is the same any day of the year, but you would actually be mistaken. According to EarthSky, sunrises and sunsets are actually longer in duration close to the winter and summer solstice. That means that within the next 6 months, now is the only time to see such a long sunrise! Not to mention, Wednesday is perfect sunrise weather. The sunrise will occur at 5:25 AM in Oradell, NJ where we at United EVENTures are located, but times will change slightly depending on your location. The morning is supposed to be clear and sunny, and only 63 degrees, so you will feel comfy with a light sweatshirt and cup of coffee.

Thursday will also be a great morning for watching the sunrise. The sunrise will still be longer since we are close to the solstice, but the morning will be partially cloudy. Although it might sound counterintuitive, having some clouds in the sky actually adds more dimension to the sunrise, and will make it prettier to look at. This can especially hold true when a sunrise occurs right before a storm hits. Thursday morning will also be in the low 60s, but beware! It’s supposed to start raining right after sunrise, so you’ll want to get back inside quickly. The Thursday sunrise will also occur around 5:25 AM.

Additionally, starting Thursday morning you should keep your eye out for a daytime moon. This is because the moon will have entered its waning gibbous phase, in which the moon will not travel the same path as the sun during the day. The daytime moon will be seen throughout the end of June and throughout July, but once August 2nd hits it will disappear once again.
